So I work at an experience design firm in Nashville, Advent, and we've been using Lumion for selective projects over the last year and it's definitely become an integral part of our presentations to larger clients. Unforunately all the work is super confidential as it pertains to athletics, mostly collegiate with a few pro teams thrown in.
I'm the only Lumion user at Advent and it's given me a lot of incentive to practice my own architectural direction. I'm not an architect by any means; I have a degree in Industrial Design from Auburn but I do like to build things in SketchUp outside of work. Let me know what you think about the project below.
I've done a few barns but I decided to try a tiny home. I guess it would be placed in a city? Sort of a standardized, multipurpose system with a garden and green space. I didn't get to the interior but I tried incorporating some exterior elements into the interior and make the glass work to muddy the divide between the interior and exterior. I've included a few renderings of where I was going with it. I'm somewhat partial to the crazy glass entry to the patio and the green space in the central skylight.
All in All it took a couple of hours to model the space and then maybe an hour to set up the Lumion 8 scene. Rendering was consistently around 35 seconds per image at Print resolution.
My machine's specs:
i7-7700k @ 4.5 Ghz
32 GB of RAM
GTX 1080 Ti (I have dual GPU's but I run them to separate monitors so the SLI is disabled)
Let me know what you think. I've always been more interested in renderings that don't require Post Processing so these haven't been edited other than scaling down the size to fit on the forum. I'll take any criticism and critique to help push me further in Lumion.
